I finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It was "okay". It got more exciting for a while, then not so much. But I finished it. For some reason that makes me feel better. As I've said before, I hate leaving books unfinished. It feels like I'm giving up. So, again..... waste my life reading books I'm not enjoying vs. finishing a boring/bad/un-enjoyable book for the sake of finishing. To be continued the next time I pick up a boring book.
Want to know what's NOT boring? Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, Book 3). I just started it. It's very exciting (as expected) --- more when I finish it.

Roku 2 XD Streaming Player 1080p -- click there to get it on Amazon), for streaming movies and tv shows from the internet. Paul the non-gadgeteer (his newest term) is rolling his eyes.
